Puppy Mills

January 31, 2011

Puppy Mills.  Grrrrrr.  Just because a kennel maybe nice and clean, doesn’t mean it’s not a puppy mill.

In my opinion a puppy mill is a person or persons who breed a bitch back after back after back and do not give the bitch time to recover before they breed her again.  This will promote unhealthy puppies and the mother will become unhealthy in a short amount of time.

I could never sell one of my puppies to someone who has a puppy mill.  I can’t imagine one of my puppies living in a kennel its whole life just to have puppies time after time.  What a sad life that would be.

When I think of my three Labs and how they love to retriever and then think of a female Lab who is locked up day after day in a kennel, not able to do what she was bred to do or get love and attention from a human, well it’s just sad and unthinkable.

Isn’t it amazing what people will do for money?  Actually, it’s pretty sick.

I just wanted to write some thoughts.  Now that Kimber is pregnant, I’ve been thinking of the puppies and placing them.

No Tick X Kimber Litter

January 17, 2011

A year ago I researched stud dogs to breed my chocolate Labrador Retriever with.  I found a beautiful, hard-driving, athlete.  His name:  Ten Bears Road Trip QAA “Tick.”

My chocolate, Kimber should have come into season September 2010.  We waited and waited for her to come in.  Finally this past Friday, Kimber came in.  I called Anne Weaver to let her know the news.  Anne is married to Mike Judas, Tick’s owner.

At this time, I am in South Carolina with Kimber and Anne let me know that Mike is in Texas with Tick.  So, there will be no Tick X Kimber litter this cycle.  I am very disappointed.  There is just not enough time to make things happen without being rushed.  So we will plan another breeding with Tick next year.

I’ve been looking at another male here in South Carolina.  A Black Labrador Retriever.  I will post the info later as long as all goes well.
